There is no realistic way I see her losing.  Not with the economy thriving as it is and with the cesspool of candidates the Republican Party has presented us with.  Our only salvation is if Biden by some miracle beats Hillary.

Got my MRI results today. Small tear in the rotator cuff, and some other small tear. Doc said no surgery needed, just continue physical therapy.
And the reason I'm getting severe pain at night, is I have a pinched nerve/muscle spasm in my shoulder blade. So anything pressing on my back, is causing the muscles to pull on my shoulder making that hurt. He gave my muscle relaxer to take at night, and added some massage therapy to my p/t for the spasm. I'll also go to the chiropractor which will help alleviate that.

You truly believe the economy is thriving? I say there are millions of Americans who might disagree.

Seems my shoulder may not be as benign as my doctor told me. I faxed my MRI to a retired orthopedic surgeon I now through the post office who know does consulting work. He told me there's a lot of stuff going on in my shoulder. There are 3 tears, and lots of scar tissue from some previous injuries. And he said the pain from my back may be from an issue stemming from my neck. He said p/t may help, but if not I should get a 2nd opinion to find out if surgery may be needed.  :(
I guess years of abuse to the shoulder, too much bow & arrow practicing in the past, and way too much reloading, has taken its toll.

Medicine, doctors and the body are funny. My father has been having extra trouble with his shoulder and had an MRI done. They told him about torn ligaments in the shoulder and a muscle torn in his back (shoulder blade). This was from an injury in 1977 (he was buried in a cave in and they did just as much damage getting him out as the dirt did, tore his arm out of the socket trying to pull him out, many broken bones) He's only been to the doctor a million times since then, countless X-rays, cat scans, MRIs, of the shoulder/back/neck over the years but no one ever saw it till now? That's nuts.

My chiropractor read my MRI report and told me I have some serious problems with my shoulder. 3 tears and a frayed bursitis sac. The one tear called a SLAT tear is what baseball pitchers get, and need surgery. And the frayed bursitis sac means I don't have the fluid in my bursitis and usually gets surgery and then they refill it.
Kinda is freaking me out here, because the orthopaedic talks like a few weeks of p/t and it should be getting better. But if it gets worse, then surgery "may" be an option. I'm calling him tomorrow and letting him know what I was told by other doctors, and if it's as serious as they are telling me. And tell me straight up if I'll need surgery or not?

Good luck with the shoulder.
I tore both of my rotator cuffs, one side was torn in two places at once.
I had a sac issue too. Used to build up fluid somewhere and my wife would rub my shoulder and could make it pop. LOL
I was scheduled for surgery and it was cancelled due to pinched nerves in my vertebrae that had to be dealt with first.
To make a long story short, they put me in physical therapy for shoulders and much to my surprise within a year I was better. Not perfect but I could live with it.
Never had surgery.
Good luck. They work miracles today!
 Unless you have a broken leg, then they just leave you miserable for months and months, and months.

Get a second opinion if you can.

I once went to a dentist and I was to told I needed root canal, crown and other dental work.  I went to another dentist, I got one of my fillings replaced.  That was 12 years ago.

Funny how you hear those stories. I know a guy who got hosed at one car dealer on a possible lease, he went to another car dealer and never went back to the first!  :D

My daughter was born premature.  She developed in-toeing when she started to walk.  More on her right foot.  I went through 4 specialist, the forth one gave us an apparatus she would sleep with to keep her feet straight.  After a while I saw no progress.  My wife found the best doctor in the city who was famous for working with similar issues.  We made an appointment and after a long wait finally got to see him.  He examined my daughter.  I told him about the other four doctors and what they had told me.  He said, unfortunately I am going to tell you the same thing.  LEAVE IT ALONE.  I said, what about the apparatus the last doctor gave us.  He said that is not for your daughter, that is for you.  So you could sleep better.

And all 5 doctors were correct ... she is now 13 and she outgrew the condition.  8)

However, I still cannot sleep any better :(
